sounds like your throttle channel is reversed?

Yes it is actually. When you turn on "Motor" mode (Futaba speak for "electric"?) it automatically offers to reverse the throttle for you. With it being reversed the prop turns in the right direction and only when you push the throttle stick down/forward. Which suggests that how it should be?

Yes, I have a DX7s as well (my other radio). This is different. It doesn't seem to be related to the throttle cut switch or throttle stick position.

With most ESCs, you get a number of beeps....the first ones in most case tell you how many cells in your packs...one beep for each cell (3S three beeps.... 12S twelve beeps).......then if the throttle is all the way down, you will get some final beeps telling you the motor is armed. If your throttle is up the ESC will not arm, or if your throttle trim is up it will not arm, etc....

Is there a troubleshooting guide in the back of the manual?

The ESC and motor are completely fine. The ESC is beeping as it should. Basically the alarm seems redundant as everything seems ok. So it just not clear why it is alarming and why all of a sudden I can't program throttle kill switch.

No radio manufacturer is going to have a trouble shooting guide for ESCs as there would be way to many variables....

My issue is at the Tx, not the Plane.... Forget the Plane... The Plane/Motor/ESC are fine and working as they should... The Tx for some reason is whining/alarming/complaining about a "motor" condition when it starts up.

nevermind, I re-read your post and understand what your saying now, but can't help. I have an 8fg but don't use throttle cut. I thought you meant there was a problem with esc at first.

(I think you're saying an alarm come on in the radio, when you turn the radio on?) My 8fg does that in heli mode when it's in throttle hold. Never in airplane mode but I'm sure there's a way to make it do that, I think you found out how, lol.

See I did read it right. I dont have to go to bed now

I was going to suggest making sure it was reversed as futaba likes to have it,,,, and then re-bind
